This year SFS is collaborating with USD to engage the san diego youth and community in a dialogue about the future, and where we are headed.

The theme of this year's Youth Summit is "Inspiring the next generation of leaders to make a change". The summit will aim towards bringing awareness to the importance of establishing a legacy, setting achievable goals to pursue, and navigating resources to best achieve those goals. The Youth Summit will focus on significant topics to the youth of today—balancing academic life as well as their future professional life. The Youth Summit will also provide workshops for students administered by industry professionals who will give various workshops on the importance of staying engaged in their educational path - and the eventual transition into the workplace. A key focus of this Youth Summit is thinking larger than self. How to best serve and positively change not only ourselves and our communities - but the larger community and the world. Please join us for a day of inspiration, motivation, and change.

Food will be provided as well as spoken word poetry performances. Thank you!
